Russian Ambassadors for Peace Try to Make Solidarity Real

Russia-2014-12-20-Solidarity Day in Moscow

Moscow, Russia - Russian Ambassadors for Peace wanted their discussions on Dec. 20, 2014, to make human solidarity more than just a beautiful slogan.

They designed their meeting, held in Moscow in honor of International Human Solidarity Day, to focus on the importance of each individual’s contribution to peace. With all the conflict and strife occurring in the world, the Ambassadors for Peace wanted to discuss how to make human solidarity a reality.

In creating this day in 2005, the U.N. General Assembly noted in its resolution 60/209 that solidarity is one of the fundamental universal values that should underpin all international relations in the 21st century.

Professor Andrei Volkov of the Moscow State Institute of Radio Engineering, Electronics and Automation touched in his talk upon political and economic aspects of solidarity. He also discussed the concept of anti-solidarity, which is present in the community in times of acute crisis.

The participants listened with interest to the coach, practicing psychologist and image maker Dmitry Ponomarev as he spoke about "spiritual aspects" in the regions and neighboring countries where he often works.

Konstantin Krylov, secretary general of UPF-Eurasia, summed up the interesting discussion. Summarizing UPF activities of 2014, he spoke about various peacemaking initiatives held to further cooperation and cultural interaction, as well as UPF support for traditional family values, healthy lifestyles and volunteering.

Thereafter followed the solemn awarding of Ambassador of Peace certificates to several attendees. One of them came from the Sakha Republic of Russia’s Far East, thus confirming the importance of such meetings and dialogues for peace and sustainable development. In fact, today intercultural interaction is especially relevant, as well as efforts to strengthen social cohesion, peace and human solidarity.
